Welcome @norcalwingman

Thanks for joining in and introducing yourself!

Congrats on getting your favorite car back in the garage, never fun to see your favorite car go out like that and we hope the new one treats you well!

Can't wait to see some photos when it arrives.

I have an old Accessport, hoping this '14 is compatible, it's the older AP, it worked with my old '14 so ... Mod 1
Welcome back!!


Not sure how much you've been here since 2017, but in case things are different now than they were then-

Best and first mod should be an intercooler, not a tune. Once you do the IC you'll actually get fair gains with the tune tailored to that one mod.

When you do tune. Don't run Cobb OTS tunes. Get a custom tune or the Adapt-x tune.

Also, Spark plugs, spark plugs, spark plugs. Make sure these are replaced before bumping the power.

Otherwise it'd be a good idea to go through all the fluids. Oil, trans fluid (50k), coolant (5 year or 100k), brake and clutch fluid (every couple years). It is an 8 year old car, you'll want it working in tip top shape.

This sounds familiar (I had a truck smush my car and bought almost the exact same thing and same color, lol). Solid choice to stick with what you know and love man! I did pretty much the same thing, but I liked the face-lift model a touch more. It's funny how this platform really brings out practicality and function to such a wide array of people, but Ford discontinued it anyways...

Enjoy it while you can!

Sorry chaps, I didn’t mean to poke fun at you not having the Focus anymore, but on the bright side, you’re not missing much, the mk4 is bloody awful 🤮. 😆
